Social Security Break-Even Calculator
Social Security Break-Even Calculator

What is the best age to start receiving Social Security retirement benefits? To help make that decision, this calculator compares the cumulative Social Security retirement benefits paid beginning at three different starting ages, and estimates how long it takes for the cumulative benefits begun at a later age to equal or "break even" with the cumulative benefits begun at an earlier age.


The total cumulative benefits you receive can be affected by a number of factors, including the age at which you begin receiving benefits and how long you live.

You can use the Retirement Estimator calculator available at the Social Security Administration's website (www.ssa.gov) to calculate your monthly benefit amounts. Full retirement age (FRA) is between 66 and 67, depending on your birth date. Refer to the table below to determine your FRA. While your actual FRA may fall in the middle of a calendar year, for this calculator, use age 66 if you were born between 1942 and 1957. If you were born in 1958 or later, use age 67.
